    • No, this was shot in the day. Some infrared video cameras are used at night for surveillance purposes. For photography, though, from what I understand, results are best when shot in sunlight.

      • No problem. I find infrared photography really fascinating. Unfortunately, color infrared film is really hard to find, and black and white infrared film is also becoming rarer all the time. In fact, Efke recently went out of business and they had the best b&w infrared film available. Anyhow, if you can, do some research into infrared photography. It’s really neat stuff!

    • Thanks, I’m really glad you like it ^^ I waited a while, watching the clouds drift by until the right moment came. I find that photography involves a lot of patience – that’s why I like shooting film : )

  1. IMPRESSIVE!!! I am really surprised of the colours !! I guess that the shot is located in the Boseong ( 보성 ) Green Tea Fields, right?
    I know that IR film is difficult to find but, where did you get your Kodak Aerochrome color infrared film? I would like to give it a try!!!

  2. Ohh, this is o great! I’m in awe with you, getting this film, it’s gorgeous! Love your result!
    Just a thought….. What if some company buy Kodak, and decide to take up the making of this film again, wouldn’t that be nice? In my dreams, huh………?

    • Oh, my word I wished this film was still widely available! I just started using it this year – well after it started disappearing. I really wished I had put more energy into photography when I was younger and many amazing films were still available. Anyhow, I’m glad you like it~!
